Just installed the kit, took out the Facet pump, and put the OEM pump back in. Do you have any recommendation about using a vent hose, versus capping the vent? Without the points arcing away in there, the vent seems unnecessary.
A really great product, BTW.

I would leave the vent-hose on: You could seal it off, but the issue with sealing confined spaces is that you have to either make them really really well sealed, or better leave them open: If sealed but with minor leakage, the temperature changes will create pressure changes inside and water and dirt will be sucked it... and cannot go out.

So better just leave the vent-hose, mount it in and S-like curve downwards so no water can get in.

I have a Caterham 7 (lightweight sportscar) with a Honda Blackbird engine. The origin of the fuelpump is unclear as the Blackbird didnt use one. However, Honda Fireblade and Kawasaki ZX1100 of the same vintage
used a pump that looked as the one pictured in this thread so I thought it might be from one of those. It had 10mm hose connectors.

As I have had problems with the pump I decided to order a kit.
Fast delivery and easy assembly. :)

A half year ago (before troubles) I tested the capacity of the pump and it was about 90l/h. I also tested when I had problems and then it was down to 12l/h.

Before I reciewed the kit I grinded the points as a quick fix and also tested capacity. It was up to 105l/h.
Finally the test with this kit I got about 80l/h.

The tests were a little crude as I timed how long time it took to pump 0,2l.
The 80 and 90 l/h results might be within the margin of error with my method but the 105l/h (ground points) was even obvious to the eye.

Can anyone explain how that can be ? My thought was that there maybe was a difference in the stroke length of the pump or maybe the end postion of the stroke. Perhaps there is a possibility of tuning the kit to higher capacity. I would be interested in this as that was the reason I measured the capacity in the first place.

In a planned update to my car I was thinking of using this pump to feed a swirlpot but at 90l/h it was a little to close to the edge for comfort so I ruled it out. If it would pump 105l/h I would try it

Anyway, thanks for this kit Dr Bean

I measured several pumps of the Adventure (8mm outlet) and they do 70 (very old one) to 90 l/h (new). the 10mm outlet pump (mounted on Honda's_ does a bit more indeed).

Then I had a quick though about usage on the bike: @ 200km/h the 950 uses about 10l/100km. Hence that is 20l/h (and in 1 hour your tank is empty).
That is still 4x less than the max capacity of the pump.

(For your car: let's say it does 20l/100km, then still @ 200km/h you are only using 40l/h and the pump is still able to give 2x that..)


SO: I desinged the kit such that it does NOT try to get the maximum out of the pump, but tries to get it optimised: less heat in the pump, better operation, better lifetime. So yes, makes sense that you do not get 105l/h with my kit, and you may get that with contact breakers.

AND: I did not include the idea that soeone wanted to have a swirlpool on his/her bike (or in the car)!
(what the hack is a swirlpot? )

regards
